IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19 including mutations) AND AGEAS TRAVEL INSURANCE
Because the World Health Organisation declared the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a pandemic on 11 March 2020 this is now a known event. This affects the cover provided by Ageas Travel Insurance policies. Any policies purchased on or after 14 March 2020 will not include cover under any section (apart from the Medical Expenses section ) for claims directly or indirectly caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes any preventative containment or delay measures. For any policies issued before 14 March 2020 cover remains as per the policy terms and conditions.
These policies will not provide any cover if the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) are advising against all but essential travel to your destination. In the present circumstances as the FCO advice on foreign travel is susceptible to rapid and significant change, we strongly recommend that you visit the FCO website to check the up to date advice against your actual or potential travel plans. You can check whether your destination is on the exempt countries list here.
This is not a private health insurance policy. The Insurer will pay for private treatment only if there is no appropriate reciprocal health agreement in existence and no public service available and the Insurer reserves the right to organise a transfer from a private medical facility to a public medical facility where appropriate.
If you are taken/or go to a private medical facility, costs that arise will only be covered if you have contacted the emergency medical assistance company and any treatment has been authorised by them.
Yes, cover is included for pregnancy. However it relates solely for complications that arise during the course of the pregnancy because being pregnant is not considered to be a medical condition. This means that only certain circumstances that are caused by complications in a pregnancy are covered. It is really important that you check this cover in the policy wording. The appropriate section can be found in the Meaning of Words under Complications of Pregnancy and Childbirth.
Most sections of the policy carry an Excess. You have agreed to pay towards a claim under each section of the policy. The amount may vary depending on the level of cover you have chosen. It is applicable per person per section. The Excess will be reduced to NIL if you have used an EHIC (formerly E111) to reduce your medical expenses bill.
If you have any pre-existing medical conditions please call 01293 855855 to assess if you are eligible to obtain full cover for the condition(s) disclosed.
For more information, please refer to the "Important - Medical Health Declaration" section of the policy wording.
